  3. What is driver revisor and is it safe to use ?

    QUOTE from
    PCWorld.com article: Driver Reviver Can Help Get Drivers Working--But Is It the Best Solution?


    "Driver Reviver attempts to make it easier to find and install updates for old drivers and software, but the just-released software ($30 for a one-year license, free feature-limited demo) currently makes the wrong call for a

    number of programs."

    Driver Update utilities are just as bad as registry cleaners. Many are junk programs often
    bundled with other software you download and considered
    Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs)

    Have you tried Hitman Pro?

    Another candidate would be Malwarebytes which is good at handling PUPs.

    Hi there
    I'm afraid you are on your own on this one - but AFTER you've fixed it always take a backup image of a CLEAN system - then if this sort of nonsense gets on to your system again simply restore a clean image --job done.

    Note - always keep OS and applications on its own partition or small SSD - that's the one you need to image. There's probably a small system reserved partition too - that needs to be included in the Image.

    Use a program like Acronis / Macrium / paragon etc.

    This will help you BIG time in future. Sorry I can't help with your original problem but this advice will make it easy to fix if it happens again or your machine becomes otherwise infected etc.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    removing a PUP called Driver Reviver

    What is being left over when you try to uninstall it normally?

  9. Thanx for your response - problem is nothing is 'left' because nothing will 'go' - the entire thing leaps up every time I boot up and nothing will move it - it does not even appear on Revo uninstaller and all the other stuff like Geek uninstaller and Malware bytes appear to be powerless - like me!!

    Answer: a clean re-install maybe?

  10. Thanx for the response z3r010- Everything is left - nothing is uninstalled - whatever I use - does not even appear on Revo uninstaller!

    Hi there. If it won't uninstall using the usual methods, you might want to first run RKILL, then TDSSKiller, then Malwarebytes Antimalware *with* the box ticked in settings for Rootkits, and finally SuperAntiSpyware. All are free. Please remember that anything RKILL does is undone by a reboot, so it may need to be run again in-between the other scans.

    Look in task manager first, find it's task and kill it, then look in in Services and see if it has one, then disable it it, then try uninstalling/force uninstalling.

    Have you tried a System Restore ?

  14. Hitman Pro gets most of these. If worst comes to worst investigate RogueKiller and/or ComboFix. Be careful with the last two, they're pretty aggressive

    Just FYI: Combofix does not work on W10.
